Israeli Border Police officers discovered a field of cannabis containing 2,600 saplings near the base of the companies in the south of the country.
The cannabis plant, according to the police, is estimated at about NIS 1.5 million. Their weight according to the report 5 kilograms.
"The Israel Police continues to fight against drugs while investing resources to eradicate the growth and trade that may harm public health," the police said.
According to the report, Border Police officers raided an area near the Plugot base near Kiryat Gat, and after searching thousands of cannabis plants were found in advanced stages of cultivation.
The police said that "we find a direct link between the illegal cultivation of cannabis and agricultural crime. Most of the agricultural equipment found in the drug-growing areas turns out to be stolen from the farmers of the south. "
According to a Border Police officer who conducted the raid, "our achievements are double, including protecting the public health by eradicating the growth of drugs and locating stolen agricultural equipment and strengthening the safety of the farmers of the south."
